Northland Nature...Honey mushrooms thrive in the woods
The landscape of mid-October is an amazing scene in the Northland. Leaf colors have been a bit later than normal and the foliage show of September has lingered well into October. Though recent rains and winds have brought down many of the leaves, there are many still aglow. During...

The amazing April of 2013 is over, but not forgotten. Statistics from such a record-setting 30 days will last for years and continue to remind us of the month that gave us more snow (50.8 inches) than had fallen in the previous entire winter of 2011-12 (49.1 inches). Now as we start...
